The name of this tea was so intriguing that we had to do further investigation, which resulted in a whole article about the results.
The tea itself lives up to expectations. The flavor fresh out of the pouch is earthy, woodsy (some call it “oaky”), and very intriguing. The tea sort of glided over our tongues in a gentle flow of flavor. That’s the best way we know to put the sensation into words. Hubby thought it was one of the best he has ever had, except for the weak 2nd infusion (we had to deduct a half teapot because of this). He even said he’d give up coffee for it. Wow! I might have to hide the rest of the 4-ounce pouch we bought for this review so that I get at least another cupful. (Just kidding -- I always share!)
We can easily enjoy this tea plain, but to be thorough we also tried it with a little milk and sweetener. That woodsiness still came through, and the milk smoothed the flavor even further. However, even though we only used a little sweetener, it still seemed to overwhelm the tea. This may be one tea that needs no sweetener, either with or without milk added.
